Subject [jira] [Updated] (GIRAPH-22) Sort out examples from unit test helpers in examples package
Date Fri, 29 Mar 2013 14:32:14 GMT


Maja Kabiljo updated GIRAPH-22:

    Attachment: GIRAPH-22.patch

I think aggregators and combiners should stay in giraph-core. The only thing left is to move
GeneratedVertexInputFormat to giraph-examples and we can close this.

> Within src/examples there are quite a few files defined that are mainly used in unit
or other tests:
> * GeneratedVertexInputFormat
> * GeneratedVertexInputFormat
> * LongSumAggregator
> * MaxAggregator
> * MinAggregator
> * SimpleCombinerVertex
> * SimpleFailVertex
> * SimpleMsgVertex
> * SimpleMutateGraphVertex
> * SimpleSumCombiner
> * SumAggregator
> * SuperstepBalancer
> Several of these explicitly say they're designed to aid in unit testing.  If these are
indeed meant for testing, they should be moved to the test directory.  If they're examples,
it would be better to sort out the overly complicated ones and ones that include lots of tests
and asserts, so only to show the essence of the example.  Hopefully the examples directory
have a few, very heavily documented programs of the helloworld/word count/shortest path variety
(with sample inputs) that can be quickly launched.  Once new developers grok these, they can
turn to the unit tests, which can of course be great sources to learn the code from.
